    Hi All,


    Just dusting off the lights to get set up for this year and went to power up my yet to be used in anger ECG-P2 and stupidly used a 12v instead of a 5v.. (jumper was set for 5volts) (did test it and working fine when i got it earlier in the year)


    Nothing looks obviously scorched but no signs of life.. :'(


    However it is still getting 5v through to connectors for strings when the jumpers are set to do so


    Is it permanently dead or is there hope?

    I did the same thing... The 5v side no longer works but it works if I jumper it to 12v. So I'm using it for my 12v strings now and a different one for my 5v

    That's interesting. There are no 5V and 12V "sides". The electronics runs from 5V and the jumpers simply put a regulator in circuit (for the electronics, not the output) when set to 12V.

    I can't think of a way that it would still on 12V but not 5V. Are you sure you are setting the correct single jumper on for 5V mode?
